Miami Area HOTELS and MOTELS Historical Photos Gallery - All Years - click on image to view

Miami, Miami Beach and Dade County certainly had a huge number and wide variety of hotels and motels due to our extensive tourism industry, especially during the winter season when all the snowbirds came down to enjoy our beautiful winter weather. Numerous hotels housed our military personnel during World War II because of the training centers that opened in Miami and Miami Beach. After the war our tourism boomed and we enjoyed winter tourist seasons beyond belief until the late 1960's/early 1970's with top name entertainers performing at the hotels on Miami Beach.

For those of you who are new to computing and/or surfing the internet, this is just one page of many pages of photos on this site. The home page for our Old Hialeah/Old Miami galleries is at http://www.pbase.com/donboyd/memories and all the oldie galleries spin off from that page. You can also click on the yellow colored >>Memories of Old Hialeah, Old Miami and Old South Florida Photo Galleries << at top of any page to get back to the main oldies page to search other galleries.

Hopefully you will enjoy seeing the many old images on this page and in the many other historical photo galleries on this website. Perhaps the images and comments have brought back many fond memories of good times for you in the past and have helped you jog your memory of places and people you may have forgotten.

If you have enjoyed this site, as many people say they do, please consider making a financial contribution so I can continue building the site and spending my time working on photos for the enjoyment of many instead of spending my time making money from other endeavors like most other people do. Thank you for your consideration.
